I m not sure i understand this, are you saying it's surprising that a helicopter doesn't work underwater or is this about how a little bird stops working when landing it with the skids in the water (engine NOT touching the water)?

i think he means the visuals!
It would be okay if the heli stops working...but underwater it suddenly looks like a burned out wreck.

i think it shouldnt have to turn into a wreck when it splashes the water.

The point is that the chopper is going down even if you contact the water only with one tire!
With a car you can drive into the sea and nothing happens until your engine block gets flooded.
